Digital Resources – ALAA

The plan is to create a “Resources” page on the ALAA website for us all to use for our research/scholarship and teaching. Currently, the resources and projects listed here are alphabetized and organized by general time period. However, if there are other categories that would be helpful and useful, please add them or change anything I’ve done. Anyone can add material. Please contact me (Lauren Kilroy-Ewbank, lauren.kilroy@pepperdine.edu or @LGKEwbank on twitter) or Jamie Ratliff (ALAA webmaster, jamie.ratliff.79@gmail.com) if you would like to add anything to this list for the ALAA website.

Explore Latin American and Latinx Art History Through This Bilingual Digital Archive.

Spare a thought for the art historians of the future: They’ll be stuck combing through messenger threads and decoding emojis for insight into their objects of study, instead of reading letters.

Michelangelo, Warhol, and Other Famous Artists Wrote Eloquent Letters to Friends and Family. Here Are Some of the Most Revealing Passages

If you need to be reminded of what a loss that is, take a peek at Artists’ Letters: Leonardo da Vinci to David Hockney, a new book brings together 100 pieces of correspondence from some of the most famous artists of the last 600 years. The assembled missives are entertaining in their glimpses of the everyday thoughts of artists, and sometimes downright moving. The letters range from the poignantly prosaic (“I beg you, kind Sir, to have my payment order prepared promptly, so that I will now finally receive my well-earned 1244 guilders,” a destitute Rembrandt begs a patron) to the overpoweringly intimate (“Let your dear hands rest on my face, so that my flesh can be happy that my heart feels once again suffused with your divine love,” writes Rodin to Camille Claudel, around 1886).

Site Index. The OER Starter Kit – Simple Book Publishing. Art UK. Art History OER Wiki. The use of open educational resources (OERs) in art history courses is relatively new, and a largely unresearched topic, especially related to effectiveness of knowledge acquisition in direct comparison to traditional textbook instructional strategies.

Art History OER Wiki

This page is a growing compilation of references and resources that is meant as a starting point for those interested in the topic of OERs and in future research of this topic. There have been several different approaches to compiling and sharing OERs at colleges, two of which are compiling them within specific courses and shared through the institution LMS, and the other is through topical library pages. The former concept makes access to these compiled resources difficult, if not impossible for those replicating efforts outside of the institution.

The later may provide general coverage, often with an over-abundance of material, requiring curation from faculty to narrow down and target reading to support lessons.
